Have you heard the trend floating around the internets that 2017 is the year of Hygge? This idea has become a buzzword for bloggers and on Christmas Eve The New York Times even put out an article allll about it. They said that Hygge (pronounced HOO-gah, like a football cheer in a Scandinavian accent) is the Danish word for cozy. It is also a national obsession expressed in the constant pursuit of homespun pleasures involving candlelight, fires, fuzzy knitted socks, tea, cake and other people. Don't you love this concept? Me too. And this obsession with coziness is now spreading to the states as a way to get through the loooong, cold winter. I mean, I couldn't agree more with the Danes that getting super cozy is the best way to combat the blues that inevitably come in the depths of winter.
So, today I am sharing a sure-fire, delightful cookie recipe to bring some Hygge into your life: Lemon Curd Linzer Sandwich Cookies! So buttery and sweet with the most wonderful lemon flavor.You're going to be in a cozy coma.
Here's how you make them:
Aren't these cookies just the prettiest? The sweet, buttery flavor brings all of the feelings of baking with grandma that you need to get your Hygge on.
I mean, is there anything better than a little tea time with a mug of hot Bigelow Tea and some pretty cookies? I love this so much. In fact, I think I'm going to change my last name to Hygge now. It just makes so much sense.
